    Centmin Mod 123.09beta01 development project dashboard lists extended backup routine/features on it's To-Do List as outlined here. This includes:
    • Ensure all backup compression routines use Facebook zstd compression for speed and smaller compressed backup file sizes. Example with custom tar + zstd backup compressed files
    • Add Nginx Vhost site migration tool for CentminMod to CentminMod server transfers
    • Add extended backup and compression tool/script functions to allow Centmin Mod install to act and serve as a backup server itself with handy backup management tools/features.

    Centmin Mod S3 API Compatible Backup Server

    The last feature is to allow Centmin Mod to be installed as a backup server itself with software/tools which allow the server to become a central backup server housing all your other Centmin Mod servers' backups. There's a good probability that one of the features for a dedicated backup server is to allow it to be Amazon S3 API compatible so you could use any S3 API compatible clients like aws-cli and s3cmd clients to initiate and manage backups to the Centmin Mod dedicated backup server. Think of it as your own private Amazon S3 storage backup server running Centmin Mod LEMP stack :D

    So I've created this poll thread to see what disk space usage is like for Centmin Mod user's largest servers so as to see what the comparative costs on average would be like for Centmin Mod S3 API compatible backup server versus the commercial alternatives like Amazon S3, Wasabi, DigitalOcean & Linode object storage.

    Example Linode's object storage Object Storage - Storing & Accessing Data. Pricing for Linode object storage:
    • For 1 TB storage with 1 TB Outbound Transfer = US$20/month
    • For 5 TB storage with 1 TB Outbound Transfer = US$100/month
    • For 10 TB storage with 1 TB Outbound Transfer = US$200/month
    With $0.02/GB Additional Storage & $0.01/GB Additional Outbound Transferred & Up to 50 Million Objects per Cluster.

    So if you had:
    • 1 TB storage and used 10TB outbound bandwidth = US$20/month + 9x US$10 additional outbound bandwidth = US$200/month.
    • 10 TB storage and used 50TB outbound bandwidth = US$200/month + 49x US$10 additional outbound bandwidth = US$690/month.
    You can find your disk space usage numbers via these commands:
    Code (Text):
    du -sk /home /var/lib/mysql /svr-setup/ | awk '{sum += $1} END {print sum/1024 " MB"}'

    Example output
    Code (Text):
    du -sk /home /var/lib/mysql /svr-setup/ | awk '{sum += $1} END {print sum/1024 " KB"}'
    878.988 MB

    I am using time4vps storage for my remote backups :)
    Very good prices.

    I'm using a bit over 640GB on my dedicated server which hosts one website (13-year old WordPress install and 19 year old XenForo forum).

    Usage is distributed between a 1TB SSD (131GB used) and a 4TB HDD (510GB used). The HDD is basically just to hold forum attachments and image proxy files (I started caching all image proxy files indefinitely a year ago).

    I currently use Hivelocity's Rapid Restore service (1TB plan) but I would like to add some redundancy to that.
